Kev: I don't give a monkey's arsehole about Mods and Rockers. Underneath, we're all the same, 'n't we? Jimmy: No, Kev, that's it. Look, I don't wanna be the same as everybody else. That's why I'm a Mod, see? I mean, you gotta be somebody, ain't ya, or you might as well jump in the sea and drown.

Dave: Chalky [Standing outside a tenement building occupied by West Indian families] Dave: This place gives me the shits, bloody nig-nogs everywhere. It's like bleedin' Calcutta around here.

Mr. Fulford: Mr Cale tells me that you spent the weekend in Brighton, I imagine you were involved some extent in the disturbances there? Jimmy: Yeah I was there Mr. Fulford: Weren't arrested or taken or anything like that were you? Jimmy: No. Mr. Fulford: I must say I find your attitude incomprehensible. I feel I must warn you Cooper that we can't tolerate this kind of absentism amongst our junior staff. You got a good steady job here Cooper, plenty of young men would give their eye-teeth to be in your shoes. Jimmy: Oh yeah! Well find one then Mr. Fulford: I beg your pardon? Jimmy: You 'erd I said find one then. Yeah I'll tell you what you can do with your eye-teeth and your job, you can take the mail and the frankin machine and all that other rubbish I have to go about with and you can stuff them right up your arse!
